"Originally, the main reason to attach shoes was to protect the feet against excessive wear, but shoes can now be used as instruments to influence performance or therapeutic aids to treat lameness. In an age where the human market is filled with specific shoes for every sport or orthopedic purpose, most horses still perform on shoes that are essentially the same as those invented more than 2,000 years ago. (It is thought that horse shoes were invented around 500 B.C.)"
